October Burlap Canvas



Hello friends

Happy October! Can you believe it's October where did the year go? I love this time of year the colours on the trees are just starting to turn where I live. They are just lovely I took a walk through the park yesterday kicking up red and golden leaves. I get so inspired by the colours of nature. I wanted to make another autumn themed project this time to put on my burlap canvas.

 I have had this stamp a while and have not yet inked it up. I seem to have a collection of Phyllis Harris stamps that have not been used yet. I wanted to do something a wee bit different with this one. I masked off the moon and stars as I just wanted to use the wee boy and the dog.  Then I painted the boy and dog using my watercolors then a very light wash for the sky and grass. I wanted them sitting under a tree. Only I have no tree stamp that was big enough so I had to paint my own. It was my first ever tree I did it freehand so please be gentle with me ha :) I went over the top using the leaves from a smaller tree stamp to give it some definition. I misted the whole tree with water and blended some of the leaves together.


I punched out some tiny leaves and added them falling from the tree and sitting on the grass. I printed the sentiment which is another favourite of mine. It's from the book Anne of Green Gables. "I am so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers." How lovely is that? Once my project was painted I glued it to some brown and orange card and then on to the burlap canvas.

Thanks so much for stopping by I hope you like my October canvas :)
